Carrick RFC are pleased to announce that on Friday February 6, Pat Lam and the Connacht squad will be visiting Carrick RFC grounds at Keenaghan.

This will be the first time that the Connacht squad will visit and train in County Leitrim. Word is, that after Pat Lam’s family visit in Carrick-on-Shannon last March, Pat couldn’t wait to return to Leitrim with his squad.

With Connacht Rugby at its highest point ever, the visit couldn’t come at a better time. When the Connacht team visit, they will complete a work out and will then train with Carrick Youth and Mini players afterwards.

This is a great opportunity to see the Connacht squad perform their training sessions up close and also meet the players afterwards. More details will follow next week.

Church Gate Collection: A big thank you to everybody who contributed so generously to Carrick RFC Church Gate Collection in Drumsna, Annaduff and Jamestown. Your contribution is greatly appreciated and will go a long way towards the development of sporting facilities in our club and community.

We can’t forget our volunteers who also deserve our thanks for helping to fundraise for the club, thanks.

On-line Sports Prediction Quiz: There is only one week left to enter our current Club Fundraiser, CRFC On-line Sports Prediction quiz. The cost is €10 per entry and this will help to support Carrick on Shannon RFC develop their new Club grounds and facilities.

The winning prize is €1,000 and there are two runner-up prizes as well.

U16: It’s still not too late to get in touch to learn rugby and become part of this growing squad. New players will be especially welcome and will benefit from the skills they will learn and the comradery of these tough 14 and 15 year olds.

U14: On Sunday February 1, Carrick U14s will be travelling to Oughterard for one of their last Connacht League games. With the Cup draw recently announced, there will be plenty of game time for all the squad. KO time and travel arrangements will be texted to all the players during the week.

U13: Carrick Under 13’s have another home game this Sunday, February 1, against Erris RFC. KO 1pm.

Minis: This Saturday, Carrick RFC will host Sligo RFC, instead of the planned visit from Creggs which had to be cancelled at last minute. KO time is at the earlier time of 10am, so all players will be required at the pitch in Leitrim Village at 9:45am.

The Mini Coaches will again be looking for parents to volunteer with catering and tidying up on the day. Sligo Minis have always shown us great hospitality every time we have travelled to them.
